Colourful Carpet Tiles Reflect Te Pari’s Unique Corporate Culture

Published May 12, 2016


Advance Flooring’s stylish and durable carpet tiles helped to create a signature look for the iconic kiwi brand in its new Oamaru Headquarters.

When the owners of livestock handling solutions company Te Pari were contemplating their new Oamaru Headquarters, they started with a blank palette, except for one aspect; due to a longstanding friendship, Advance Flooring Systems were already chosen to supply their carpets.

By adopting this unconventional approach, their choice of carpets was to be the key to the overall design of their office interior.

Advance Flooring Systems recommended their popular ‘Montreal’ mottled grey carpet tiles as the base floor covering. This robust carpet tile is stocked in New Zealand as part of their Express Delivery range and has a subtle style which breaks up the expanse of the floor and is pleasant to walk on.

But to really make the floor pop, the expanse of grey was broken up with vivid highlights in Te Pari corporate colours using another Advance staple: Rondo. These amazing colours are from the GreenPad range of carpet tiles made from the Dupont Sorona fibre, offering superior stain resistance and durability. This created bursts of colour throughout the building which acted as design cues with matching highlights in the walls, doors and furniture.

The end result was a vibrant and distinctive work environment that unmistakably represents the Te Pari brand.

To cap off the floor treatments, Te Pari fitted Advance Flooring’s highly absorbent WaterHog Eco Elite entrance carpet system. Designed for locations where moisture and dirt can be a real problem, this product is extremely durable and highly water absorbent. Its rugged and businesslike appearance fits perfectly with the earthy branding of Te Pari.
